Lightning Gravy

Rating: 4.06 stars
35

Gravy in 5 minutes! You can use any flavor bouillon; chicken, beef or vegetable. I've used this in many a 'pinch'!

Lite Corn Pudding

This is a lighter version of regular corn pudding for those who are watching calories.

Air Fryer Turkey Breast

Rating: 4.8 stars
5

If you have a taste for turkey, but don't want the time or the hassle of a full bird, try a split turkey breast, prepared in the air fryer. This recipe gives the flavor of an oven-roasted turkey, but in much less time, and with much less fuss! Use any combination of fresh herbs that you and your family will enjoy!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4.6 stars
4370

This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Rating: 4.83 stars
848

Best brine for smoked turkey around. This recipe was given to me by my uncle. He is always smoking meat. EDITOR'S NOTE: This recipe uses canning or kosher salt, not table salt. Using table salt in this amount will make the brine too salty.
